Dear Film Lover,

This fall, 75,000 people will once again celebrate today's biggest and best films at the New York Film Festival.

We want you to be a part of it, too!

Join as a member today and get tickets before the general public, plus other great benefits and a special gift!

In the coming days, we’ll be announcing this year’s Main Slate selection, as well as several other programs and special events you won’t want to miss. Captain Phillips, the Paul Greengrass film starring Tom Hanks, will open the festival; Ben Stiller’s highly-anticipated The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, will anchor as our Centerpiece selection; and the Closing Night film, the World Premiere of Spike Jonze’s Her starring Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams and Scarlett Johansson will close the festival.

Join as a member by Midnight, next Tuesday, August 20, and you will receive a special NYFF commemorative gift and these exciting exclusive benefits:

Member Pre-Sale Period for Early Access to New York Film Festival Tickets
Don’t miss out on any of this year’s hottest tickets! Members may purchase single tickets during the Member Pre-Sale – more than a week before they go on sale to the general public.
Discounted Tickets to New York Film Festival Screenings
Save up to $5 per ticket to all festival screenings with special member prices throughout the Festival.
Early Access to Year-Round Film Society Programming
We hope you will visit us all year-round for our diverse and renowned programming! Members get early access to our most popular festivals throughout the year, including New Directors/New Films, Rendez-Vous with French Cinema, and the New York Jewish Film Festival.

Click here to join by August 20! Join now to receive a special NYFF commemorative gift! This offer won't be repeated.

The festival is only possible thanks to the support we receive from our members. Revenue from ticket sales covers just a small fraction of the cost of our operating budget, and Members provide the financial support necessary to present 17 days of more than 100 films, 200 screenings, in-person appearances, special events, stirring conversations, and more.

Please contact our Member Desk with any questions ( or 212.875.5620). We hope you’ll take advantage of this offer in time to fully enjoy the 51st New York Film Festival.
